Creating animations in Flash is easy when you know the basic tools and concepts! Our favorite Flash expert, Iain Anderson, begins this course by explaining how to efficiently set up, view and navigate a new Flash document. Next, he's on to exploring the freehand line tools and their editing options, graduating quickly to the primitive and solid shape tools. You'll learn the intricacies of how to effectively draw your own objects with the confidence of understanding how each tool behaves.
From there, Iain explains when to group your drawing objects or when it's more efficient to create symbols instead. Next is a look at Text, as well as how to use the powerful and sometimes overlooked Eyedropper Tool.
You'll also learn how to import external graphics and apply Color and Filter Effects to begin breathing life into your images before even animating them! By the end of this course you'll be well-prepared to start adding action and movement to your artwork.
